Children love seeing zoo animals up close and personal, with monkeys being one of their favorites.

They love watching them swinging from branch to branch and eating bananas.

Kids have much love for the monkey species that’s for sure. My Monkey pencil topper is extremely popular with boys and girls.

This paper roll Monkey will keep children happy in between visits to their local zoological gardens! He is one of my more simple toilet paper roll craft ideas for younger kids

While he cannot eat or play he still looks the part and will make a good puppet for story time and pretend play.
